Where did Starbucks begin?

The company’s story goes back to 1971. Starting with a single store in Seattle, Washington, Starbucks roasted and retailed coffee, tea and spices.

 

Starbucks was founded by Jerry Baldwin, Zev Siegl and Gordon Bowker, who named their company after one of the characters in the novel ‘Moby-Dick’ by Herman Melville.

 

Current Starbucks’ executive chairman Howard Schultz joined the company in 1982. In that same year, Starbucks started supplying coffee to fine restaurants and espresso bars. The coffeehouse concept was tested in 1984.
